Characteristic X-ray imaging for palliative therapy using strontium-89 chloride: understanding the mechanism of nuclear medicine imaging of strontium-89 chloride

Strontium-89 (Sr-89) chloride is a targeted palliative therapy used for painful bone metastasis in which repeated doses can be administered, and its usefulness has been reported in the case of bone metastasis of various primary tumors. However …


A simulation study for estimating scatter fraction in whole-body 18F-FDG PET/CT

Whereas Monte Carlo (MC) simulation is widely utilized in estimation of the scatter component, a simulation model which can calculate the scatter fraction (SF) of each patient is needed for making an accurate image quality assessment for clinical …

A new shielding calculation method for X-ray computed tomography regarding scattered radiation

The goal of this study is to develop a more appropriate shielding calculation method for computed tomography (CT) in comparison with the Japanese conventional (JC) method and the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements …


The effect of influence quantities and detector orientation on small-field patient-specific IMRT QA: comparison of measurements with various ionization chambers

Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) requires a patient-specific quality assurance (QA) program to validate the treatment plan and a high level of dosimetric accuracy in the treatment delivery. Dosimetric verification generally consists of …


Evaluation of basic characteristics of a semiconductor detector for personal radiation dose monitoring

Real-time radiation dose management is important because staff members working in interventional radiology may be exposed to relatively high doses of primary and scattered radiation from the body of a patient. In this study, we investigated the …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Radiological Physics and Technology covers multiple disciplines involved in basic research and clinical applications in radiological sciences. The multidisciplinary research in medical physics and radiological technology as well as the promotion of research efforts in new scientific fields will be facilitated by the journal's editorial policy, which will also aim to promote translational research in this field. Manuscripts submitted to Radiological Physics and Technology will be reviewed by editors and reviewers not only with an emphasis on scientific quality but also with an educational policy to encourage and nurture new investigators. Reviewers follow guidelines prepared by the Editor-in-Chief to provide comments that will assist authors who are nonnative English speakers, especially young researchers with little experience in publishing in English, to develop the competence in writing good scientific papers.
